I am not a shill. I don't own or plan to own a BikesDirect bike anytime soon. However, the thread below in the road bike forums seems to have some possible interest for XC riders regarding an inquiry on a potential BikesDirect TI road/cyclocross frame offering.
Ti framed road bikes - what is the market?
If nothing else, perhaps some other manufacturers may see this and look into the potential market for a TI XC frame. (I know Hab, Sibex, and others offer TI XC frames, but the more the merrier right, haha)
I apologize for not knowing how to cross list the thread.
